safety

A fluorescent pipe cleaner, a little plastic piece that goes in the barrel, and a metal drinking straw and a dream…

I mean… it looks like it works I guess 🤷‍♂️.  I know what the lady is saying about trigger and cable locks making it hard to handle guns at the gun store.  Those are there though because they would require a key or bolt cutters to remove.  You can call the metal tube “the ejector”, but at the end of the day like I mentioned in the heading… it’s basically a drinking straw, so in other words easy to get ahold of and remove whatever shotblock you want.

What do I know though?  This is probably a billion dollar idea, if it’s like any of the inventor Bill Masters’ other ideas.  I googled him and he started a big kayak company, basically invented 3d printing and holds lots of patents to do with that etc..

As usual, no pricing information on the ShotBlock website.  This seems to be pretty standard practice for some reason I have still yet to figure out.  As I’m typing this I checked out the facebook page, instagram page, and the date on the video, and they all seem to be from 2018 so I guess we can assume the project was abandoned.

Thoughts?

Good advice from Flannel Daddy:

I know some of the stuff probably seems over the top to a lot of people, but it’s sound advice.  You gotta take care of yourself.

Some funny comments as usual:

“Inb4 airsofters start wearing respirators because they’re worried about lead poising” -Scoe88

“Fumes from firearms are highly toxic. You gonna want to filter it out through a cigarette.” -teeroux

“In the state of California this video is known to cause cancer.” -Michael Masoner

“Fun fact: Jeffery Epstein died of lead poisoning.” -Koala Tactical

etc.. haha

People are definitely getting made fun of lately for wearing the masks as a fashion statement (which honestly is likely true for a few of the IG guys I see wearing them). Thoughts?

He didn’t TM it this time, but he calls it the “ON/OFF-SET Technique”:

Damn, he really loves to hear himself talk.  I’ve been pretty busy hiking and biking this summer, so I’ve missed a lot of the CoNTeNT to post on here… I’m going to try and catch up though.  I’m really glad to see VODA is still creating such quality.  My Instagram has been the most poppin’ lately because I can easily do that from my phone.  Make sure you’re following that for some good memes and what not.

My former future stepson.  The kid, as you know is is now the NFA kid… he can legally manufacture autos and suppressors:

Nice little .22LR setup, amazing oil filter suppressor LOL.  Man that thing is a high ROF.  One problem remains…. still NO EYE PROTECTION.  I wish an eye protection company like Oakley or something would just step up and provide him with a supply of glasses.  We currently live in 2018… there is no myth around eye protection not being needed.  If you can wear it, you should.

Oh and while were at it, I know he’s shooting most of those firearms with suppressors but that’s not real hearing protection he has in either… they are music earphones :/.

Damn, this is creepy:

“Family fire”… I see what you did there.  Holy they did a nice job on their fancy website, I’ll say that.

The website advocates safe storage and education, however they also advocate storing your ammo and gun separately.  They also have a lot of “facts” in their campaign tool kit which I’m not 100% sure are accurate and not meant to mislead. I find it hard to believe that guns are the #2 cause of death among children. Why don’t these places cite the actual source? Also, why are they lumping injured in with killed? Seems like an effort to inflate the issue. If you pulled a stat of all kids that were “injured or killed” by vehicles, swimming pools, knives etc… the number would be incredibly massive due to the “injury” part of it.

I don’t know the back story of this organization (anti-gun? sort of pro-gun? I lose track of all these “safety” efforts), but part of their message seems to be OK. It’s like that will all these places though. They basically advocate for some of the same things us pro-gun people stand for, but then the end result is “ya basically you should have your ammo in one safe, and your gun in the other, and let your family doctor set the code and only let you get the codes on request once your deemed in a good mental state and absolutely in need of the gun for a valid self defense or recreational reason.” Cool story bro. Make sure you tell the guy breaking into your home RIGHT NOW that.

People are always looking for ways to make Glocks “safer”.  This one was done for the Taiwan and Portuguese police straight from Glock apparently:

The other side:

 

Not pressing the trigger when you don’t want it to shoot is apparently not good enough.  Gotta have something to fumble around with.

I’m surprised the Israelis haven’t asked Glock to make some addon that wouldn’t under any circumstance let them carry with one in the chamber.  That’s always been the move over there, and they are sticking to it. Maybe like a microphone and slide mounted lock requiring verbal confirmation that they are ready to shoot, which unlocks the lock and lets them chamber a round. Yeaaaaaaaaaa.

Remember the other manual Glock safety?  “TeH GaDgEt”  Does anyone use that thing?  Like I said in that post… If a Glock Safety gadget was needed, gaston would have added one.
